Manzanilla Pasada En Rama Xixarito, Bodegas Baron Sherry
Tasting Note: Pale yellow in colour, this Manzanilla has an intense nose with woody notes, a touch of faded flowers and hints of nuts. On the palate, it is fleshy, very dry but with enough weight & texture and an excellent acidity that culminates in a slightly salty finish.
Food Matching: Mojama (salt-cured tuna), anchovies in vinegar, cold soups, cured meats and sushi.
Vineyard: This wine comes from the ‘Palomino’ variety, obtained by gentle pressure and subjected to complete fermentation. The very special microclimate of our winery located at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, provides the development of the ‘velo de flor’ which provides its unique organoleptic characteristics.
Vinification: The 15% alcohol volume obtained by biological aging must be undertaken in full in wineries located in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Being a product called 'pasada en rama' combines two attributes, one of them the freshness of a product twinned with his barrel and a finesse and elegance of its pre-oxidative balance. This biological aging continues for a period of three to four years in American oak barrels using the traditional ‘criaderas’ and solera system.
